Open and accessible research

Facilitating open design, research, and innovation with cities and communities.

The Foundation follows strategic research lines to meet our long-term plan to make cities produce (almost) everything they consume. Through our projects, courses, networks, and events we seek best practices for smart cities, green innovation, digital transition, and community building. We focus on producing high-quality case studies and outputs for take-up in and beyond our network of cities and regions and undertake high-level research with collaborators which you can read about on our research blog.

The Fab City Foundation is committed to fostering open and accessible research.
